will be up against the national rifle association, no particular friend of yours. they are not going to be happy with any kind of restrictions on gun sales because they are lobbying for the gun industry and their profits. >> there is a difference between limitations on purchases and limitations on who can purchase. there is beginning to be a consensus that those who are ineligible to by firearms should be restricted. people who have criminal backgrounds are ineligible to buy. there should be a universal record check. right now, there are so many ways to avoid the record check. you do not have any background check of all. you just go pay your money and get your firearm. >> thank you for joining us from capitol hill. those plans being unveiled tomorrow by the president. you may never have heard of graphemes, but it has the potential to change your life. it is billed as the world's thinnest and strongest material, and the global race is on to get it, i use it and sell it. >> a science fair in manchester and excitement about the revolutionary material graph scene. manchester has pioneere
for the most sweeping gun control measures in many years. the national rifle association launched a preemptive strike against it. it involved the president's family, in part. but this time they may have some formidable opposition to their position. it's where we begin our reporting tonight with our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. this was no ordinary policy rollout. we have seen the president do this on a number of issues. this one was filled with an emotional plea, if you will. in fact, the president spent more time trying to drum up support for a campaign using emotion than he did talking about his actual plans themselves. an emotional president obama unveiled his plan in front of an audience that included parents of newtown victims. >> she dreamed of becoming a painter. chris, her father, gave me one of her paintings. and i hung it in my private study. and every time i look at that painting, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. for grace. >> the president outlined four
enforecement and members of the national rifle association, president obama signed 23 executive actions that can be implimented without congressional approval. they include money for schools to hire a thousand security officers and restoring aid to research gun violence at the centers for disease control. "congress, too, must act, and congress must act soon." the president listed a half- billion-dollar effort that will need congressional approval to enforce universal background checks for anyone buying a weapon, reinstatement of the assault-weapons ban that expired, a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips defined as more than ten rounds, and more aggressive prosecution of gun laws. reaction was swift. "the vast majority of americans support common-sense gun regulation, and clearly the white house was listening." the national rifle association, which is reportedly planning to launch a daily tv talk show, released an ad critical of the president. the nra also issued this statement: in the marketplace, gun manufacturers report sales are up and may not be hurt by the president's plan to ban

with representatives of the national rifle association today as he continues task force meetings. he met with victims of gun violence at the white house yesterday. they held an unannounced meeting with a group of leaders last night. he will present his findings and recommendations to president obama next tuesday. tonight we invite you to tune in for specialized programming. the invisible threat hosted by robert jordan. they will take a look at local efforts. you look at possible steps to prevent mass shootings. the program will include several experts. you can also participate electronically via twitter. use in the past 10 invisible threat. jerry sandusky's lawyer makes a case for why he needs a new trial. he argues that he did not have enough time to build an adequate defense. the city was not able to review moreof documents. the former penn state assistant football coach did not speak during the hearing. he suffered from a brain disease probably caused by decades of jarring on the field head injuries. he shot himself at his home in california last may. he played linebacker for 20 seasons. developin
to have a meaningful discussion in this country. >> thank you. we want to bring up what the national rifle association's president said on cnn. he said he is already rejecting the white house outline of gun- control recommendations, specifically any ban on assault weapons or high-capacity magazines. he says that is a nonstarter. >> i would say the likelihood is they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban. >> how about a clip? >> i don't think ultimately they will get that either because i don't think you can make a case that you can regulate it because these things cost virtually nothing. even david gregory could find one. we live in a society where we have constitutional rights. secondly, there are millions upon millions of americans who value the rights they have under the second amendment and they are involved in shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense and we think they are going to be hurt. >> that is the president of the nra. we want to see what you think about that issue. our next caller is jennifer from riley, kansas. >> i just want to say that freedom is ou
organizer for the national rifle association, and they are now a little mad at him because of a book he wrote called "ricochet" and he is starting independent firearm owners of america. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> cenk: talk to me about what motivates the executives at the nra. >> well, the nra has a board of directors, and the staff is obligated to do what the board instructs them to do. i looked at the testimony about 13, 14 years ago, and our organization strongly endorses mandatory background checks for the transfer of fire arms at a gun show. gun shows are very different than when you sell a friend or transfer a gun to a relative. you know who you sold the gun to. at a gun show you are just like a retail firearm dealer. you are open to the public and you don't have a clue who you are selling the guns to. that's why licensed dealers put people through the background checks. everyone should go through that check at gun shows. >> cenk: let me give some numbers to you and the audience. nra contribution money. in 2010 it was $71 million
to reduce gun violence gun advocates have their own ideas the national rifle association proposes arming principles and teachers to help prevent mass shootings at schools we reached out to the illinois rifle association for comment on tonight's developments they did not return our calls. vice- president joe biden will deliver a plan to crack down on gun violence the vice president's task force is expected to recommend background checks for all gun buyers background checks would include private sales and it may prohibit the use of assault weapons. diminish the probability that what we have seen in these mass shootings and diminish the probability that our children are at risk in their schools. vice president meeting with the representative from the national rifle association for about a half an hour today an hour and a half i should say. he also talk to leaders from wal-mart and dick's sporting goods. conservatives were planning a national gun appreciation day taking place next saturday the liberal organization launched a petition against the event the group will deliver the initiative to

with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of i7d ind. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favor of the president's plan and said he believes it has bipartisan support. those senators all have a or a-plus ratings from the national rifle association. reid has a b rating. these senators know they will lose their high rating and maybe become a target with the nra if they vote for a sensible assault weapons ban. you see, we had the assault weapons ban back in 1994, but we're so screwed up in washington right now they're even afraid to go back to that. every senator should explain to their constituency why they would not cast a vote for the assault weapons ban. what's the holdup? what are you afraid of? certainly it's not the nra. these senators should not fear the national rifle association. the nra didn't affect any
to go big on this. >> thethe national rifle association released a video. >> the national rifle association came out swinging. >> put more guns in school. wow, you got me on that. >> doing whatever it takes to get an a-grade from the gun lobby. >> from the overmajority support of their members. >> adam lanza still would have had access to guns. >> these measures have the support of the american people. it doesn't mean that these will be easy to enact or implement. >> cenk: now in there we had of course the most absurd defenses by the republicans, which i'll get to in a second. ana kasparian joins me here. first let's start with president obama's press conference today. let me show you what he said. >> obama: they are common sense measures. they have the support of the majority of the american people. yet, that doesn't mean that any of this will be easy to enact or implement. if it were we would already have universal background check. the ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines would never have been allowed to expire. it will depend on congressional action. they need
by saying of the senate passes a bill, will look at it. the national rifle association responded to the president's announcement with the statement, attacking firearms and ignoring children is not a solution to the crisis we face as a nation, only honest law-abiding gun owners will be affected, and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. despite the president's statement that today's event was all about protecting america's youth, there is little question that no one or any combination of his executive orders would do as much to protect schoolchildren as the nra proposal to place armed guards and all of our schools, a recommendation that most on the left and in the national media initially tried to who down. a proposal that elicited a skeptical response from the president himself, but which is now beginning brought up momentum. a new ad accuses the president of elite is hypocrisy on the issue. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about putting our security in our schools? his kids are protected by armed guard
proposals the national rifle association and others are bound to fight. peter doocy is in washington with more on the plan that is expected to be unveiled this week. >> reporter: good morning. eric, the national rifle association does not think congress can pass an assault weapons ban or a restriction on high-capacity ammunition. and the nra president explained today, he thinks those clips are tough to regulate because they cost so little to make. >> the fact is that -- we live in a society where, first of all, we have a constitutional right and secondly, there are millions and millions of americans who value the rights that they have under the second amendment and who are involved in the shooting sports or use firearms for self-defense. we think they are going to be hurt. >> the argument against an assault weapons ban was made concisely by haley barbour who said, quite simply, if you make it a crime to have a gun, only criminals will have gun. but many lawmakers -- mostly democrats -- have been trying to poke holes in that argument. and senator chris murph frecontact connect, who at
" with lawrence o'donnell. have a great evening. >>> the national rifle association is singing to new lows in the polls. and new lows in their tactics against president obama. they are now using the president's daughters. >> well, president obama trumped congress. >> the president is planning to take matters into his own hands when it comes to gun control. >> i'm confident there are some steps we can take. >> 19 possible actions he can take. >> i'm against having a king. >> president says if congress doesn't do what i want. >> somebody who wants to bypass the constitution, that is somebody who wants to act like a king. >> the power to make laws starts in the house and senate. >> congress didn't get anything done. >> there is myth around gun control in this country. >> has it become the guns over people party? >> you have the extremists on talk radio? >> i am totally confused. >> youxtremist politicians. >> all of this comes as governors of delaware, new york and maryland. some of the strictest laws in our nation on guns. >> led by governor andrew cuomo. >> the people in this state are cryi
who support the law say it protects the rights of gun owners. the national rifle association somehow managed to put this stealth legislation into president obama's health care reform bill. the question is how and why. and why, whatever you think of a law, one of the president's top allies, that's right, the president's ally, helped the nra get it passed. no surprise that there's a big dose of politics involved here. jim acosta tonight is keeping 'em honest. >> when president obama signed national health care reform into law, few in washington knew that buried in the legislation's more than 900 pages was a gift to the nation's powerful gun lobby. but here it is. a provision entitled "protection of second amendment rights." it states the government and health insurers cannot collect any information relating to the lawful ownership or possession of a firearm or ammunition. the provision was such a secret, "the washington post" reports that some people in the white house didn't even know it existed, despite being in the president's signature legislation. joan alger did notice it. >> who
, the rhetoric, the absolutist if not extremist rhetoric of the national rifle association seems to be catching up with them. >> krystal ball and frank smyth, thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >>> coming up, hillary clinton says she just can't see herself getting back into politics. but andrea mitchell can, which is why she asked hillary clinton if she would challenge joe biden in the democratic primary. you will see the answer to that question coming up. mission a fo. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two. verify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting today's leading companies to places beyond it. siemens. answers. why does my mouth feel dryer than i remember it to be? there are more people taking more medication, so we see people suffering from dry mouth more so. we may see more cavities, bad breath, oral irritation. a dry mouth sufferer doesn't have to suffer. i would recommend biotene. the enzymes in biotene products help supplement enzymes
the national rifle association. people flagrantly brandishing their second amendment rights at political events, specifically gun toting events for president obama, showing up in campaign events in new hampshire and elsewhere, with their guns on display. and it was the gun rights groups trying to out do the nra with more inflammatory retroactive, today, wayne lapierre and the nra were determined not to allow any gun rights fanaticics to sound crazier than wayne lapierre. joining me now, msnbc's krystal ball, and krystal, it seems to me that the tea party has had its effect on the nra, nudging them even further into the crazy season. >> yes, it seems to be. the nra is an elitist group, sending out the anecdotes, what you heard gail trotter remark about, they questions their membership that obama and the democrats want to come for their guns. and that has worked for a long time. but what we're seeing now, i think what we're seeing today is the death of a caricature, that stuff worked for so long. but what are we talking about? assault weapons ban, background checks for everyone. all of that makes
president biden who has met with everyone from victims' groups to the national rifle association. in the meantime, some states are forging ahead on their own. the new york legislature moved today to adopt the nation's toughest gun control bill. the measure broadens the definition of assault weapons under an existing ban and limits ammunition magazines to seven rounds. it also creates a registry for all private gun sales, and it requires that mental health professionals report patients who make credible threats to commit a gun crime. >> i am proud to be a new yorker today. i am proud to be part of this government. not just because new york has the first bill but because new york has the best bill. this is a complex multifaceted problem. this is a comprehensive bill that addresses the full panorama and spectrum of issues that come up. >> woodruff: other leaders, including new york city mayor michael bloomberg, have joined the call for action this week at a summit on gun violence in baltimore. >> the rate of firearms homicide in america is 20 times higher than it is in other economi

party and its operatives are in the pocket of an unreasonable uncompromising national rifle association. so it's a good fight to pick and my only point was i think sometimes there's a self marginalization, because i think this is an all-american question that is worth though fight. >> jennifer: i totally get that. point well-taken on that. there are two conversations, i'm guessing, that go on inside of the white house in the inner circle. one is do you pick this fight and lose and are you weakened for other agenda items down the road? and the second one is how much political capital do you spend on this fight, if this is the first fight out of the barrel? do you know what i'm saying. >> yes. i think there are three big fights moving forward. if one believes the president was so horrified and moved and angered at what happened in nowtown, and the stars are aligned in this fight, and there's the immigration fight. and the republicans would be insane to step back from that or obstruct that motion. they will come in with all kinds of things. but the republican
